THIS year's Favorite Books issue has a retrospective feel. Inside, you'll find pieces on the pioneering comics artist Winsor McCay and children's author Beverly Cleary, as well as a reflection on rereading and a look at the lingering influence of the chapbook. At the heart of all this are the lists of our favorite books of the year: 25 works of fiction and poetry and 25 of nonfiction, culled from our reviews in 2007.

As David L. Ulin notes in "Honk if You Love Pico-Union" (Nov. 15), L.A. audiences don't turn out in droves to support home-grown or nontraditional arts. The few existing mid-sized theaters don't seem to be thriving, and the demise of Alfaro's alma mater, the Inner City Cultural Center, which emerged from the ashes of the Watts riots, has left a large void. However, as long as Alfaro and other gap-straddling, fun-poking, hmm-inducing performers and writers can work at art-irritating-life, there may be hope for this city yet. Kezia M. Jauron Sherman Oaks To those who know him, Alfaro is a gifted talent, one who perseveres and relates Latino complexities to an oft-times skeptical public.
